Original Dancehall Dictionary

RRP $13.99

START TALKING LIKE A JAMAICAN TODAY. Love Jamaican reggae music and our expressive language? Love a great laugh too? This is the right book for you. As reggae/dancehall music has become very dominant in our culture, artists and their youthful followers continue to play a huge role in the development of our language, known as patois, as they are constantly coining words and phrases that baffle even older Jamaicans and certainly foreigners. Also as people worldwide swing to our music and tales about our scenic country with its numerous natural attractions continue to seduce everyone who hears about it thus becoming a well -known and greatly sought after tourism destination in the Caribbean, since most Jamaicans do not automatically speak English but only when required, this dictionary is critical to travellers as well music lovers. For you never know when your dream will come through and you not only have the pleasure of rocking to our music but also get the opportunity to visit us. This is 6th edition of the Dictionary, a publication which since 1993, has been doing an invaluable job in helping the world understand our language and the cartoons not only assist in the translation but also they add to the hilarity of the publication. Our Dictionary therefore will satisfy all your needs in a most humorous way. Yea mon. No problem mon. Irie. Just think how much more you will enjoy the pulsating beat of reggae/dancehall music and a visit to our seductive island if you could understand what we are saying or singing about! However, to understand our language or even speak like a Jamaican, you do not have to study complicated pronunciation rules like for English, as everything you see is pronounced phonetically. Yeah mon. So start your lesson in the Jamaican language today. Lesson 1. If an artist at a stage show is giving a great performance, what do you shout most exuberantly" Hat it up yes" and when the performance is lousy make sure you shout "Pack Up and park." Thirsty? You need to "beat sum juice" and if your partner eats everything in sight? That makes him " Nyami nyami." When you cannot understand what is being said if you do not indicate that you have a problem "overstanding: " you will continue to be left in the dark! Need to feel irie? A Bob Marley is a large marijuana/ganja cigarette/ spliff. So named as the great reggae artist's most famous poster has him holding the huge sample. And to make it easy for you to follow the logic of the language, the little cigarette/spliff is called a Ziggy after Bob's eldest son...little Bob! Oh the joys of the Jamaican language. Right Mi Pree? Wi flex good. So much to learn, so little time. So kick back and enjoy learning one of the most useful, beautiful and expressive languages in the world.

Witness To The League Of Blond Hip-hop Dancers

RRP $39.99

In a novella and 11 stories, widely published author and dancer Donna Allegra presents a lyrical and stirring portrait of black lesbians set against the backdrop of West African, jazz, and hip-hop dance. In each story readers inhabit the skin of women who live for dance, women who work and love in a world in which bodies are disrobed and constantly on parade but where lesbian erotics are rarely spoken. But for all these lesbians, women come first in importance-an uncommon stance in the new mythology that paints black women as self-sacrificing towers of strength waiting to exhale.Donna Allegra is a poet and dancer living in New York City. Her work has been published extensively in magazines, and anthologies, including "Best Lesbian Erotica," "Hers," "Does Your Mama Know," and "Lesbian Travels." She is the winner of the Pat Parker Memorial Poetry Award and was a runner-up for the Audre Lorde Poetry Prize in 1994.
